Hopefully with the specialization in Diabetes care, SJRMC realizes that NOT all diabetics in this area are natives. This articles direction seems to imply that 'non-natives' need not attempt to get services from this hospital and new much touted physician for diabetes. Hopefully that is not the case. My grandaughter who almost died at 9 years old from type-1 diabetes has to get her physician care from UNM in Albuquerque so a local endocrinologist would be a godsend. The long distance monitoring is all she has had and has been great, but fraught with difficulties in communications and obtaining prescriptions for the lifesaving supplies and insulin. So GREAT for the area in them obtaining this physicians expertise to the area. Not so great if as the article implies that it for native residents only.

That's not what contagious means.

And yes, diet can encourage certain types of diabetes.
